A Hagerstown man was charged with disorderly conduct and several drug counts after a fight early Sunday at Hard Times Cafe & Cue on Massey Boulevard near Hagerstown, according to Washington County District Court documents.

David Roberto Petway, 24, of 907 S. Potomac St., was charged with one count each of disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hagerstown Police Lt. Mike King said officers were called to assist the Washington County Sheriff's Office with a disturbance call at Hard Times at about 1:10 a.m. Sunday. When police arrived, King said, they were told by an employee that Petway was the instigator.

According to the application for statement of charges, Petway started to walk toward his car and began shouting obscenities after officers told him to come back.


"At that time, I placed Petway in handcuffs for investigative custody," Officer Ronald Isaacs wrote in the application. "I observed Petway trying to leave the scene again. When I went to grab Petway's arm, he started pulling his arms away ... I advised Petway that he (was) under arrest."

Documents allege that Petway was placed in the back of a police cruiser and searched.

"While searching Petway, I removed a small clear plastic baggy containing a green leafy like substance from Petway's left cargo pocket," Isaac wrote. "Due to Petway's injuries from the fight, I released him from custody and advised him that I will be applying for charges."

Documents show that the charges were filed Monday.

Petway's trial is scheduled for Oct. 28.
